20(ish)--- Mocha-sicles

This may be my last popsicle post of the summer. Sad. I had to go with fudgey for such an occasion. With a kick of coffee. To make my hubby happy. These are fantastic!

Sorry for the overly-basic photo. It's really hard to take pictures of popsicles!

Makes 5-6 (depending on your molds)

1 oz semisweet chocolate, chopped (you may use chips)
1/3 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups skim milk
1 1/2 Tbsp finely ground coffee (you may want to consider decaf if you are sensitive to caffeine and plan on eating these in the evening- or if you have kids and do not want them any more bouncy)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp unsalted butter

In a double boiler over low-boiling water, melt chocolate, stirring constantly until smooth. Stir in sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, milk and coffee. Continue to stir mixture until thickened, ~8-10 minutes (you may have to increase the heat slightly). When thickened, whisk in vanilla and butter.

Immediately transfer into a spouted liquid measuring cup, then pour into molds. Freeze overnight.
